Greatest Ever Squad Central Midfield

Greatest Ever Squad Central Midfield

The Greatest Ever Blackburn Rovers Squad is taking shape. With some re-evaluation we are getting closer to a finalised squad.

For some time we've been trying to put together what we, the Vital Blackburn members see (on the whole) as the Greatest Ever Blackburn Rovers Squad.

We've previously suggested and voted on names, but we are now undergoing a re-valuation process which is looking at those that have been selected to ensure "they really are worthy of their place in the Greatest Ever Rovers Squad.

After looking at Ronnie Clayton, Howard Kendall, Eddie Latheron & Tugay, who had previously been selected, it has been decided that the final selection of the four central midfielders should be:

Ronnie Clayton
Jimmy Forrest
Eddie Latheron &
Tugay


So Howard Kendall comes out with Jimmy Forrest coming in.

This means Ronnie Clayton, Jimmy Forrest, Eddie Latheron & Tugay will now be the final four from which we will eventually (not yet though!) select from when we finally do compile our Greatest Ever XI. But do remember the squad can and will still change over time at your request. Once we have a finalised our 23-man squad and have then selected a Greatest XI I will reveal how the "appeals" process for change will happen.

The penultimate positions up for re-evaluation are the right-midfielders . Look out for this shortly.

This wasn't really an area too many people had a say on, most were happy with Tugay, not so bothered by the rest, which is fair enough with some giving VERY valid reasons as to why they wouldn't contribute more. Jimmy Forrest was a player I had much debate with BomBom about but think it is MORE than fitting he takes his place. Howard Kendall is unfortunate to miss out but think his best days were with another team.

You have to feel for Sav don't you as he has the obvious quality to be in :) In all seriousness though, if we looked over this again in a few years time you never know, maybe he could be. In terms of technical ability and skill he isn't the greatest (but still FAR better than given quality for) but in terms of what he offers a club he is worth his weight in gold. Tugay is worth LOTS of people's weight in gold!
